Light at the River

Light at the River

There's a deep solid river flowin' just before
And it's water's are deep and wide
But fate sees a light
Yes, a beckoning light
Just down by the river side

Cho: There's a light at the river
     A light at the river
     There's a light at the river I can see
     My lord will stand
     And hold in his hand
     A light at the river for me

To that deep solid river
We will one day come
And we'll cross over waters wide
But they'll carry us way
To the realms of day
To our homes on the other side

Many dear ones have gathered
Safe before the throne
Dip their wings in the mystic tide
Ihey are passed over deep
Where they do not weep
To their homes on the other side
